Almac Clinical Services invites you to join our complimentary customer Lunch and Learn workshop, Ensuring Supply Chain Flexibility and Viability for Biologics. We created this event to provide you with critical insights into the subject area of adaptable clinical trial supply solutions in a changing market.

As a biologics-focused innovator, your study protocols and products are complex and demand careful management. This workshop will explore the benefits of having a robust packaging strategy that takes into consideration solutions that ensure your temperature sensitive products remain viable and flexible for wider use across your studies lifecycle. Take control over your high cost, high demand clinical supplies, and learn how to decrease waste, increase product availability, and effectively manage limited stability profiles within the clinical supply chain to meet the specific needs and timelines of your biologic trials.

Understand the key milestones that directly impact clinical trial supply, and explore current and projected shifts in the clinical trial landscape which will require sponsors to be more responsive to change. Topics that will be covered include:

  • The rise of biologics and market pressures
  • The complexity of biologics supply chain management
  • Flexible clinical trial supply solutions including Just in Time Manufacturing
  • Critical considerations for cold chain management

  • Clinical Supply Chain Management
  • Clinical Trial Design
